Travel to lake Baikal
The more adventuresome might head to Siberia to visit Irkutsk & travel to lake Baikal – the Pearl of Siberia, a world nature wonder in its own right.
The location of Baikal lake is the southern part of eastern Siberia within the Republic of Buryatia and Irkutsk oblast (province) of Russia. The lake basin is located in an ancient rift depression of glacial origin.
Baikal contains some 45 islets and islands, the largest of which are Olkhon (about 270 square miles) and Bolshoy Ushkany (3,6 square miles).
The breathtaking beauty of Baikal is almost unearthly & rightfully known as the real Pearl of Siberia.
Lake Baikal has been celebrated in several Russian folk songs. Some of these songs are well known in Japan.
